Please be careful about believing crisis info posts on Fakebook, Social Media and even mainline news sources: There are tons of hoaxes circulating. If there is no verifiable source provided with the info, while it may contain some degree of truth (as do all good lies) you should always have a healthy degree of scepticism. -Ed.

 

Health Minister calls for areas with more than 500 Covid-19 cases per 100,000 inhabitants to be isolated, 5 villages in Malaga Province qualify: He also admitted, however, that the Health Ministry can only offer recommendations, and that regional authorities must “decide”.
The 14-day cumulative case incidence figure per 100,000 inhabitants in Andalucía on Friday was 158 and in Malaga province 186.
If the 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants advice was followed for every municipality in the country, however, five villages in Malaga province would be closed: Guaro, Jimera de Líbar, Sayalonga, Serrato and Sierra de Yeguas.
Other municipalities with higher incidence rates in Malaga province on Friday were Marbella with 374, Coín with 352, and Ronda 327, among others. The rate for Malaga city was 146.

Cyclists will be allowed on new Guadalhorce estuary bridge: Crossing the bridge, when it opens Sunday, will be allowed by bicycle, said councillor for Mobility José del Río, at a maximum speed of 10 km/h with priority given to pedestrians at all times.
The opening of the bridge will not only save cyclists from crossing the river using the more dangerous road bridge, but also make it easier for people from Guadalmar and even Torremolinos to cycle into the city.

Recommendations & Requests

 

Car Hire Question: Does anybody recall using a car hire company based in the UK, called, I think, Malaga Car Hire? I used to phone a UK number, speak to a woman in Surrey, I think, pay in sterling, then pick the car up from Niza Car Hire at the roundabout near Malaga airport, with no additional charges, no pressure to buy additional insurance, no stress at all. The service was always excellent. I have not used them for several years, and wonder if they are still in business. I haven’t been able to find them on the internet, where “Malaga Car Hire” leads to a company based near the airport. Does anybody have any leads or contact details? Peter

Please be careful about believing crisis info posts on Fakebook, Social Media and even mainline news sources: There are tons of hoaxes circulating. If there is no verifiable source provided with the info, while it may contain some degree of truth (as do all good lies) you should always have a healthy degree of scepticism. -Ed.

 

BREXIT Banking Update: There are no blanket answers; some banks may close some accounts, while other banks and account types will be unchanged. Until the new Post-Brexit EU/UK banking regulations are finalized there will continue to be questions. Contact your bank for info regarding your specific situation.
This article is the latest public info I could find from a reasonably respectable source on UK matters, updated Thursday afternoon, from the BBC. -Ed.
Lloyds Bank has written to 13,000 personal and business customers, saying it will no longer be able to offer banking services once the Brexit transition period ends on 31 December: Barclays, Barclaycard and Coutts –  are taking similar action.

Orca Attacks: Spain has temporarily banned sailboats from a stretch of its northwestern coast after several vessels were damaged in attacks by orcas, or killer whales, in recent weeks.
The week-long ban, which came into effect on Tuesday night, applies to sailboats under 15 metres.
The first attack was reported on August 19th, said the ministry. Since then there had been several more orca attacks against sailboats and small yachts, causing various degrees of damage to the vessels, mostly to their rudders. Full story:

Confusion over Spain’s plans to grant citizenship for descendants of International Brigades: During the past week, it was widely reported in both the British and Spanish press that the descendants of volunteers who fought in the International Brigade during the Spanish Civil War would be offered citizenship.
Yet when details of the draft bill were published, it appears that the proposal does not stretch to descendants, and includes only the International Brigade veterans themselves.
The misunderstanding stemmed from comments made by Pablo Iglesias. Tweeting last week, the Podemos leader and Deputy Prime Minister Pablo claimed that: “The descendants of the members of the International Brigades who fought for freedom and against fascism in Spain will be eligible for Spanish nationality. It was time for this government to say to these heroes and heroines of democracy: thank you for coming.”

Spanish Supreme Court rules food delivery riders are employees: The Spanish Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday that food delivery riders are employees, not self-employed workers. In recent years, some workers hired to deliver goods via apps like Glovo have been demanding recognition as salaried staff and petitioning for the corresponding rights, such as sick leave and paid holidays.
Glovo is one of the many companies to take advantage of what is known as the “gig economy,” a term that refers to workers who are self-employed and work temporary, flexible jobs such as, in this case, delivering food from a range of establishments to customers, or drive for transportation firms such as Uber, or deliver parcels for e-commerce giants like Amazon.

Police Chase Italian Pirate IPTV Subscribers: Police in Italy are reporting a large operation against a network involved in IPTV. The Guardia di Finanza says that 58 sites and 18 Telegram channels have been blocked while four IT experts with familiar nicknames have been referred for prosecution along with 1,000 subscribers of pirate IPTV services. GdF says work is now underway to identify around 1,000 pezzotto / IPTV subscribers – some local, some overseas – so that they can be prosecuted for breaches of copyright law and receiving stolen goods.

UK Bank Account Closure Update: It appears that banks are keeping their options open, only providing answers “as it stands now”, and are reserving the right to change their policies as the situation develops.
It’s important to stress that this is not all British banks, and not all types of account are affected.  Two readers have reported contacting their bank and being told their accounts will not be closed. One reader reported receiving a notice that  their credit-card was being cancelled. -Ed
-This article contains the latest responses from popular UK Banks when they were asked for their policies on account closures due to Brexit.
https://www.thelocal.es/20200922/how-post-brexit-bank-changes-could-affect-british-people-in-spain
– (Updated Wednesday) As the British government has so far failed to secure access to the EU banking scheme – known as passporting – after Brexit, UK banks are faced with complicated processes to gain financial licences with each of the EU’s 27 member states.
And it seems that for some this is just not worth the effort – leading to British people living around Europe getting letters saying their accounts would be closed or their credit cards withdrawn.

At Least 380 Whales Dead In Australia’s Largest Ever Mass Stranding: At least 380 pilot whales have died off the coast of Tasmania, in what experts are calling Australia’s largest recorded mass stranding event.
Nearly 500 whales have been stranded on a beach and two sandbars along the western coast of the island state.
Initial reports on Monday said that 270 whales had been stranded at three different sites, some of which had already died. Then authorities surveying the area by helicopter on Wednesday discovered another 200 that were stranded about 6 miles to the south – but all of those animals were confirmed dead.

Spanish Gov’t Uses Grand Rhetoric to Claim Squatter Problem is an Urban Legend, Rejects Stronger Anti-squatter Measures: {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} “What was illegally occupied 80 years ago was Spanish democracy” and it {VOX} seeks to create scaremongering around squatting by building “urban legends” whose sole purpose is to promote “a climate of fear” and so that private security companies do business. These are the arguments that the PSOE and Podemos parties have put forward to reject today the motion of Vox, the third largest party, in which it requested a modification of the Criminal Procedure Law so that the evictions take place in 24 hours or less and the legal reforms that make those responsible pay with jail, “not with small fines.”

Golden Leaves Funeral Plans:
Pre-planning your funeral is a thoughtful and responsible way to show you care about your family.
Funerals are no easy task. There are numerous considerations to factor in, including logistics, food and drink, casket purchase and burial grounds. A loved one’s death brings immense emotional strain to any family, and the question of financing and arrangements only exacerbates the stress.
Handling all of these challenges is difficult enough in one’s normal circumstances, but having to go through it while abroad is an enormous burden.
Golden Leaves Funeral Plans aims to support grieving families during these tumultuous times. Since our inception in 1984, we have partnered with a widespread network of funeral directors across the UK and Europe.
Purchasing a funeral plan with Golden Leaves enables you to plan, design and pay for your funeral services in advance.
As one of the leading providers of expat prepaid funeral plans in Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, Balearic Islands, and the Canary Islands, we make sure to adequately support your family in the time of greatest need.
If you are an expat family in need of prepaid funeral services please contact Ruth on phone or whats app + 34 693 715 718

Vetiver Spain in Sayalonga is now fully open!
We have started to receive clients but by appointment only. It is wonderful to finally be able to have visitors! We are of course following the legal guidelines regarding masks and social distancing.
The summer is a great time to plant Vetiver as this plant is indigenous to India. Vetiver loves the heat of summer to grow. Vetiver is often used as a wind barrier in the fall and winter months. Vetiver is the best plant to stabilise erosion prone locations before the first fall rains come. We have plenty of plants in stock for either pickup or delivery via the Spanish Correos.
It is always a great way to spend a day in the garden.
We also have Moringa seeds, Lemon Grass, Moringa seedlings and now our new product, Organic Moringa Powder. If you do not know the medicinal powers of Moringa you can check it out here. https://www.vetiverspain.org/moringa-oleifera-.html
This month we have some specials for both pickup and shipments.

My wife is having a problem with her Outlook email account:
1) Whenever she sends an email to herself it goes into “Junk”
2) When she tries to share an image , to herself, ( using “Outlook” or “email” ) from her phone “gallery” or from a “Whatsapp” message; it will not send it.

Please be careful about believing crisis info posts on Fakebook, Social Media and even mainline news sources: There are tons of hoaxes circulating. If there is no verifiable source provided with the info, while it may contain some degree of truth (as do all good lies) you should always have a healthy degree of scepticism. -Ed.

 

Ministry of Health registers new 241 deaths- Spain returns to State of Alarm levels: {translated from seville.abc.es} The Ministry notifies of 10,799 new cases and 241 deaths in the last 24 hours, a number that has not been seen since last May 1, when 276 deaths were registered. According to Health calculations, ICUs are at 16.79% of their capacity.
The pandemic continues in Spain, which returns to record numbers at a time when regions are multiplying their efforts to contain contagions. In just 24 hours, the country adds 241 deaths, a figure that it had not seen since the hardest moments of the epidemic, and 10,799 new cases, of which 3,125 correspond to the last 24 hours.
Since last May 1, when were registered 276 deaths (which were reported on day 2), in a state of alarm and with the country confined, such a high death toll is not remembered.
The data provided by Health adds 241 new deaths , which brings the total figure to 30,904 compared to 30,663 in the report this Monday. In the past seven days, 468 people have died with a confirmed diagnosis of coronavirus. This is a slight increase compared to the 311 that were reported in Monday’s report. By region, the Community of Madrid is the community with the highest number of deaths in the last week: 171 (9,129 in total). They are followed by the Basque Country , which registers 65 (1,824 in total) and Andalusia with 47 (1,702 in the total count).
Of the 3,125 new cases in the last 24 hours, 335 have occurred in Andalusia, 308 in Aragon, 68 in Asturias, 28 in the Balearic Islands, 161 in the Canary Islands, 51 in Cantabria, 62 in Castilla-La Mancha, 10 in Castilla y León, 125 in Catalonia, nine in Ceuta, 27 in the Valencian Community, 178 in Extremadura, 73 in Galicia, 953 in Madrid, 16 in Melilla, 56 in Murcia, 348 in Navarra, 291 in the Basque Country and 26 in La Rioja.
At this time, there are 10,629 people admitted for coronavirus throughout the country, which is a slight decrease compared to yesterday’s figures (11,031). The pressure in the ICU is another major concern and there, according to data provided by the Ministry, 1,348 occupied beds (also a slight decrease compared with Monday, when they were 1,417), although in the last 24 hours have produced 949 admissions and 416 discharges. The occupancy rate of beds occupied by coronavirus is already 9.6%, while ICUs are at 16.79% of their capacity.

Spain’s new decree on working from home – everything we know so far: A preliminary agreement was reached on Monday by the government, unions and business associations on a legal framework for teleworking, something that was not a common practice in the country until the coronavirus pandemic hit.

As Europe faces 2nd wave of virus, tracing apps lack impact: Mobile apps tracing new COVID-19 cases were touted as a key part of Europe’s plan to beat the coronavirus outbreak. Seven months into the pandemic, virus cases are surging again and the apps have not been widely adopted due to privacy concerns, technical problems and lack of interest from the public.
A few countries have scrapped their tracing apps and others that have rolled them out have found so few users that the technology is not very effective. The adoption rate goes from about a third of the population in Finland and Ireland, to 22% in Germany and a meager 4% in France. Health officials initially targeted a 60% adoption rate, an optimistic goal based on an Oxford University study from April although researchers noted a lower uptake still helps if other measures, such as social distancing, are enforced.

Moonette Aromatic Skincare for 40+
*We are a Torrox based company specializing in the creation of formulas which help prevent premature skin ageing*
As our skin is the first layer of our defence against microbial infections, ultraviolet radiation and environmental contamination it plays a vital role in our lives. As we grow older however, our skin will become thinner, more sensitive, less firm and require the use of treatments containing specific ingredients to the care of treating mature skin.
Recognizing this need we have created a range of formulas which help reduce the appearance of the signs of ageing by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, and also by eliminating blemishes and imperfection.
At Moonette, we are passionate about health, beauty and plants. Your skin will benefit from the properties of botanic essential oils combined with a selection of nutrients for deep hydration and cell revitalization, all sourced from the finest natural ingredients.
Naturally, we care about our planet and feel the need to help reduce the sheer volumes of plastics waste that are generated daily around the globe. Presently, we are minimizing the usage of plastic materials in our production while seeking alternative forms of packaging. To help reduce pollution we are asking all customers to recycle or reuse their Moonette skincare containers, and offering:
* A discount on future purchases to clients recycling containers
Free testers of eye cream, face cream, and body cream are available on request. You can also try out testers in 2 beauty salons in Torre del Mar and Puente Don Manuel (Alcaucin).
September Sale- 10% discount if you purchase 2 items in a phone or an email order. To find out more or to order, please call us on 650 044 102.

UK Banks: Thanks Naythan for publishing the links to articles on UK banks and passporting. We have already heard we are losing our Barclaycard in a few weeks and are just waiting for the ‘other shoe to drop’ with news from our UK banks. We thought we had an ‘international’ account with Lloyds international but it seems it means international everywhere except the EU! We don’t have family in the UK and wouldn’t wish to ask a friend to allow us to use their address. Not keen on having pensions sent straight to Spain for various reasons.

BREAKING NEWS– Covid-19: UK coronavirus alert level moving to 4: The UK’s coronavirus alert level is being upgraded from 3 to 4, meaning transmission is “high or rising exponentially”, its chief medical officers have said. It comes after the government’s scientific adviser warned there could be 50,000 new coronavirus cases a day by mid-October without further action.
On Monday, a further 4,368 daily cases were reported in the UK, up from 3,899.
BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg said it sounded “very likely” that pubs and other venues in England will be forced to have 22:00 closing times, alongside other measures. Full story: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-54241580

 

Nine new Covid-related deaths reported in daily update for Malaga province: Monday’s figures showed fourteen fatalities around the region of Andalucía, where 988 Covid patients are in hospital, 136 in intensive care. The daily Covid-19 update from the Andalusian Health ministry added nine new deaths in the province of Malaga (which includes the Costa del Sol health districts), taking the totals for this month up to 52 and since the start of the pandemic to 350.
In the region of Andalucía as a whole, which takes in eight provinces, 14 fatalities were reported on Monday (1,706 since the start of the pandemic). Full story: http://www.surinenglish.com/local/202009/21/nine-covid-related-deaths-20200921145540.html

Councillor José David Segura has detailed the start-up of the service, which will be from Monday to Friday: “It will be open from 1 to 3 pm only with take-out food.

Recommendations & Requests

 

Recommendation for Spanish conversations in your own home:
Are you an intermediate level speaker who would benefit from 1:1 ( or small group)Spanish conversations in your own home courtesy of the internet?
Since the beginning of the pandemic I have regularly talked with Cristina, a lovely local lady who chats about topics of interest. She is extremely patient, calm and always encourages you to talk about your interests and opinions. We have real conversations in Spanish and I have learnt a lot about local customs and fiestas. Cristina explains how you can improve your Spanish and corrects when mistakes are made. I wish I had met her years ago when I first came to Spain (and was a lot younger) as I have always found language learning very hard!
If you want further information call her on 634654906.
This could be the way to really improve your Spanish now we have more time at home and don t have so many chances to practice. Recommended by Judy, Torrox Costa. judyannspain@yahoo.com

Brits in EU risk losing UK bank accounts ‘within weeks’ !! :
Some of Britain’s biggest banks have begun contacting customers in European Union countries, warning them that their accounts will be closed down within weeks because the cost and complexity of operating without a continuation of pan-European banking rules is too much. According to a report in The Times (hidden behind paywall) thousands of Britons who live in Europe face being stripped of their UK bank accounts and credit cards, because of the UK government’s failure to agree rules for operating after Brexit.

Firefox for Android users: If you use the Firefox web browser on your smartphones, make sure it has been updated to version 80 or the latest available version on the Google Play Store.
An attacker, connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the victim, can access and take control of nearby Android devices through Firefox—without requiring any interaction from the victims.
“The target simply has to have the Firefox application running on their phone. They do not need to access any malicious websites or click any malicious links. No attacker-in-the-middle or malicious app installation is required. They can simply be sipping coffee while on a cafe’s Wi-Fi, and their device will start launching applications under the attacker’s control.” Full story (with creepy demo video):

Of Interest to TuneIn Web Radio Fans or UK Internet Radio Owners: TuneIn Blocking Debacle- Bombing Internet Radio Back to the Stone Age
We’ve come a long way since the days of shortwave radio and analog pirate radio stations. The Internet promised a lot, allowing broadcasters to reach an international audience keen to soak up culture from all over the world. Sadly, the latest actions by the UK music industry against TuneIn feel like an attempt to bomb radio fans back to the stone age. The stations themselves are still broadcasting of course but TuneIn listeners will probably have to get used to finding them another way. It might be a good time to get familiar with how to do that right now, before it’s too late.

Two terrorists from “NAR” neo-fascist group that caused the largest massacre in Italy is arrested in Marbella: National Police have found in Marbella two dangerous terrorists wanted in Italy. One is a woman who was on the run from Justice and on whom a European Arrest Warrant for Extradition had been issued for almost a decade. She is a member of the neo-fascist Revolutionary Armed Nuclei (NAR), which sowed terror in Italy in the “lead years” of the 70s and 80s of the 20th century. They are credited with the largest massacre in the country’s history in 1980 with a bomb at the Bologna train station. They killed 85 people and left 200 wounded.

Fakebook is again being sued for allegedly spying on Instagram users, this time through the unauthorized use of their mobile phone cameras: Facebook is accused of using facial-recognition technology to illegally harvest the biometric data of its more than 100 million Instagram users. Also, by “obtaining extremely private and intimate personal data on their users, including in the privacy of their own homes,” Instagram and Facebook ITAL are able to assemble very invasive, highly accurate user profiles that they use for marketing purposes and share with their business partners.

Please be careful about believing crisis info posts on Fakebook, Social Media and even mainline news sources: There are tons of hoaxes circulating.

Spain reports 11,291 new coronavirus cases and 162 deaths:
The Madrid region continues to face the greatest pressure, with 21% of hospital beds occupied by Covid-19 patients, compared to the national average of 8.6%
The Spanish Health Ministry recorded 11,291 new coronavirus cases and an additional 162 deaths in its official report on Thursday. This brings the total death toll – which only includes those who died after a positive PCR test – to 30,405. Madrid accounted for more than a third (34%) of new Covid-19 cases recorded by Spain’s regions. The daily report did not include figures from the Murcia region, which for the second day in a row experienced “technical difficulties” when reporting its latest coronavirus statistics to the ministry. Catalonia reported the same problems on Tuesday. Full story: https://english.elpais.com/society/2020-09-18/spain-reports-11291-new-coronavirus-cases-and-162-deaths.html

 

Costa del Sol hotels close en masse with no reopening date on the horizon: Hoteliers predict that only 20 per cent of the Costa’s establishments will be open this winter, as many local icons close for the season for the first time ever. During this month last year 72% of the Costa’s hotel rooms were full, and with higher-spending tourists. This year the month’s occupancy is expected to be no more than 23%, according to the Costa del Sol hoteliers’ association, Aehcos.

UK entering second wave of coronavirus, Boris Johnson warns: Britain is entering a second wave of coronavirus, Boris Johnson has said as scientists expressed fears the death toll could be as high as in the first spike without a rapid change in public behaviour. The prime minister is prepared to impose sweeping nationwide measures to curb the spread of Covid-19, it is understood. About 13.5 million people in the UK – one in five – are already facing local lockdowns after the government introduced new measures in parts of the north-west, Yorkshire and the Midlands.
Speaking during a visit to Oxfordshire, Johnson said: “We are now seeing a second wave coming in. We’ve seen it in France, in Spain, across Europe. It’s been absolutely inevitable, I’m afraid, that we would see it in this country.” PHOTO:TWITTER

Recommendations & Requests

 

Translator/Interpreter Wanted: Hello, I am looking for an interpreter for a civil court date in Velez-Malaga on 19/10/20.
I speak some Spanish but I am not fluent. My solicitor has advised me to bring a friend on the day just in case. I don’t live in Spain and I don’t have any friends in the area.
There won’t be any requirement for you to argue the case, you’d just be there to ensure I haven’t missed something in translation.
If you can help or know someone who might please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
I am not looking for a freebie and expect to have to pay you for your time and expenses.

Many thanks. Ben, Velez

Junta advises against non-essential gatherings, as coronavirus case figures soar in Andalucía: The regional president Juanma Moreno has not ruled out new restrictions if the case figures continue to rise during the rest of September.

Moreno advised against non-essential gatherings, even those with relatives “whenever possible”. Infection was easier at gatherings where people drop their guard, he said. Full story:

Bank of Spain downgrades economic forecast and warns of slower recovery: According to the central lender, GDP will fall between 10.5% and 12.6% this year as a result of the coronavirus crisis.
